Vote record below, but first, a special note on Marietta Republican Rep Bert Reeves who, before he voted “yes” expressed his gratitude to Republican sponsor Kasey Carpenter for his “courage” and cited “unfair insults” and “blatant lies” surrounding opposition to Rep Carpenter’s HB 120. We are very curious to know exactly what Rep Reeves is talking about and hope that he will find the same courage to openly cite the “lies” he mentions in committee. We did write about HB 120 bill here and here.
You can watch a one-minute video of Reeves in committee on Youtube.
We also share a special note on Rome Republican Rep Katie Dempsey for her “evolution.” Dempsey was a (silent) co-sponsor of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Enforcement Act of 2011 (HB87) but yesterday joined Reeves and voted with the Democrats to give illegal aliens special treatment unavailable to Americans and legal immigrants from most other states.
The Dustin Inman Society will work with the coming new “Liberty Group” to find primary opponents for both Reeves and Dempsey. See the other Republicans who voted with the Democrats below.
HB 120 is now out of committee. If you want to stop it from going to the Senate, please leave a short, polite message with Speaker Ralston’s staff: 404-656-5020. Do not assume your own Republican Rep is a “NO” vote in the full House. The big money, pro-amnesty lobby is driving this bill.
ILLEGAL ALIENS SHOULD PAY LESS TUITION IN GA’S PUBLIC UNIVERSITIES THAN AMERICANS AND LEGAL IMMIGRANTS FROM MOST OTHER STATES
